Autumn Leaves: Music on the Hill Chamber Chorus

Date/Time

Nov 17, 2017
08:00 PM until 09:30 PM

Description

Music on the Hill presents a concert in tune with the changing seasons, performed by 12 pro singers with Ellen Dickinson, conductor, David H. Connell, piano, and Carolyn Engle, cello.

Featured is a new work by Canadian composer Sarah Quartel: "A Winter Day," in five movements for chorus, piano and solo cello. Each movement depicts a distinct time of day, beautifully differentiated through varied textures of vocal and instrumental sound, highlighted in this performance by the vibrant acoustics of the Wilton Presbyterian Church.

Other selections by contemporary composers include "The Road Home" by Stephen Paulus and the e.e. cummings poem "i thank You God for most this amazing day" set to music by Elliot Z. Levine.

The singers are members of the Music on the Hill Chamber Chorus, a professional ensemble known for impeccable a cappella performance described as "positively transporting."
